    The Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft) tools help keep our scrum teams moving in the right direction. It gives Sr. Executives visibility into the progress of our digital transformation efforts. It provides information to our program manager to create the necessary artifacts to justify continued funding of our initiatives. It also supports the SAFe framework, along with some others. And the Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft) tools provide integration to other tools that we use in our portfolio.

    Best suited:
    • When we want to setup an automated deployment pipeline.
    • When we need a repository while working on open source projects supported by a huge community.
    • If you want to deploy the programs in cloud platforms. Tested on platforms like AWS, Azure, GCP, Heruko.
    Less appropriate:
    • When the need is just for version control. GitHub is more than that.

    Pros

    Atlassian

    • Effective Sprint planning : Sprint planning can be done using Planning Poker in AgileCraft by clicking Team > Manage > Other > Estimation Games very effectively for distributed teams.
    • Team Capacity Allocation Report: After tasks are created at team or program level, the report from AgileCraft cab be pulled and can be verified that no team member is under or over allocated. A report can be generated by navigating to Team > Manage > Assign Tasks.
    • Effective Requirement trace-ability: To maintain requirements trace-ability follow the steps below:
    • Upload test cases against the story/requirement. once uploaded test cases will be visible under that story
    • Execute Test cases in AgileCraft and mark them as Pass/Fail based on the actual outcome
    • Based on test results, The acceptance criterion's can be marked as “Pass” or “Fail” & if marked failed corresponding defect can be logged & can be attached with the story
    • So against each story we can easily see whether all test cases been executed or not & which acceptance criterion's are failed & how many defects are in open or close state.
    • Daily Scrum: In AgileCraft, the option to run a daily stand-up is available from Team > Manage > Daily Standups. Selecting the sprint number opens the daily stand-up meeting window in which each team member's tasks are visible and hours can be burned against them. Conduct Scrum meetings in AgileCraft, and burn each associate hour against the tasks created during the meeting. The burn-down chart can be generated & viewed during the stand-up to check whether the team is on track.

    • GitHub's ease of use is one of its biggest strengths. The site is structured around Git, a code version control system, which is used by developers around the world. GitHub's UI is minimal and allows you to focus on what's important, whether it be your branches, pull requests, or issues.
    • GitHub's integrations and tools are fairly ubiquitous. You'll likely find an integration with GitHub on every development tool with integrations. This makes it easy to incorporate in whatever workflow you may have.
    • GitHub is incredibly reliable. I don't remember the last time it was down for any significant period of time. This is essential for companies that rely on it for their daily operations.

    Cons

    Atlassian

    • The initial ticket creation screen lacks some important features, such as assigning "point values" (a measure of effort needed for the ticket).
    • The browser needs to be manually refreshed to see new tickets, which can make things confusing when several people in a meeting are simultaneously creating tickets.
    • The interface on some smaller portions of the software are sometimes difficult to understand.

    GitHub

    • When browsing history of a file, GitHub could make it easier to see the file after a particular commit instead of just being able to quickly view the commit. I'd like to be able to see the commit or the file itself in one click.
    • I would like to be able to view commits by user.
    • I would love to be able to traverse code on GitHub (go to definition, etc) - the good news here is that they are working on these features!

    There is nothing that can be better than Jira but it needs to keep improving certain areas especially the attachment size area.

    GitHub

    GitHub's ease of use and continued investment into the Developer Experience have made it the de facto tool for our engineers to manage software changes. With new features that continue to come out, we have been able to consolidate several other SaaS solutions and reduce the number of tools required for each engineer to perform their job responsibilities.

    Usability

    Atlassian

    Most of the things are easily manageable except certain things that are hidden and you need to ask teammates who are aware of how they can link attachements in the comment section and so on.

    GitHub

    - Easy to use compared to other version control software. UI interface makes it easy to use, as well as protects against making a major mistake by deleting code, etc. - UI looks modern. - Support for multiple platforms, which I assume will only get better with time. - Student benefits are awesome! - The size limitations on their repositories make sense to me. Not too crazy but realistic from a business perspective.

    Support Rating

    Atlassian

    Overall support from Jira team is good. It comes at an additional price but it is very efficient. There are no long wait times, you get a dedicated team to look into your issues. The support is available throughout the year and they keep a record of your issues. Overall we are very satisfied with the support they have provided us over the years, it has been very effective for the price that we pay.

    Never had the need to use GitHub's customer support. The tool is already very intuitive, has a lot of FAQ on their website, or you can easily find your needs by just googling the issue. Also, GitHub has abundant documentation online for any specific scenario that the user may have.

    Alternatives Considered

    Atlassian

    Microsoft Azure Devops won't have the major functionality of software management like Jira. The customization provided by Jira is having a cutting edge over any project management tool. Adds-on and Plugins feature in the Jira Tool make it as perfect as desired task management tool for any company. One of the best Agile based Project Management Tools.

    GitHub

    At the time to evaluation - Bitbucket was very tightly integrated into Atlassian’s suite of tools. For an organization that is starting out and looking to spend limited funds effectively - the cost/benefit of using that suite of tools usually doesn’t make sense. Granted things may have changed since then (its been over 5 years) - but at the time GitHub was effective - and all prospective engineers knew about it and already had accounts. This made it very easy to add to the organization and not lose time in training, etc. Developers seem to really love GitHub above most other tools out there - so that plays into the decision making as well.

    Return on Investment

    Atlassian

    • It has positively impacted our tech teams, allowing them to better organize the tasks and items they are working on and has greatly improved their ability to communicate & review these tasks with other teams.
    • I believe it negatively impacted other departments as lengthy training was required by many associates to attempt using the tool, only to find out it didn't meet our needs, therefore much time was wasted.

    GitHub

    • Github has increased our rate of code development, increasing our publishing rate. This helps bring attention to the research we are doing and ultimately brings in more funding for further research.
    • Because GitHub makes my team more efficient, we are able to put more hours into code development / report writing rather than agonizing over different versions of code created without version control software.
    • We use a paid version of GitHub, because we work through private repositories, but the increase in productivity, efficiency, and research progress is definitely worth the price.
